Mississippi State is ranked 13th in the USA Today coaches poll, which is the third highest ranking in the Southeastern Conference.

Vic Schaefer‘s Bulldogs received 385 points, three behind Duke who ended MSU’s run in the NCAA Tournament last season. South Carolina is ranked No. 2 followed by Tennessee at No. 4.

The Bulldogs return four starters and 10 letterwinners from last year’s 27-7 squad including three of their top four scorers.

Fans will get a preview of State as the team hosts an intrasquad scrimmage today at Humphrey Coliseum at 6 p.m. The scrimmage will follow the new women’s basketball format of four 10-minute quarters. Admission is free.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
